European Study Abroad Security Think Tank

History of the European Study Abroad Security Think Tank

Over three days in September 2017, DIS welcomed education abroad professionals both in the U.S. and Europe to the first annual European Study Abroad Security Think Tank at our DIS Copenhagen location.

The Think Tank was an exciting opportunity to explore the changing realities and perceptions related to the security landscape in Europe. Participants went beyond the ordinary health, safety, and security conversations and explored creative approaches in partnership with European professionals in related fields such a psychology, law, terrorism studies, and sociology.

Continuing the Conversation

The Think Tank was the start of an ongoing collegial dialog that DIS is committed to supporting. It is our hope that Think Tank participants will help DIS to shape the future of this conversation by making recommendations for future initiatives including possible research projects, white papers, future think tanks, and more.
